What is Vienna known for?

scale program

railway station Kraków main station and the city's Academy of Economics (Cracow University of Economics). It was also at around this time that Kraków's first large radial boulevards began to appear, with the city undergoing a large scale program aimed at transforming the ancient capital of Poland into a sophisticated regional capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Large representative government buildings and multi-story tenement houses first began to appear in Kraków during the period of Austro-Hungarian rule, and it is now clear to see that much of the city centre beyond the Old Town was greatly influenced by the urban-planning and architectural practices of architects and engineers trained in Vienna. Other major projects of the era included the development of the Jagiellonian University's premises in the city and the building of the Collegium Novum just west of the Old Town. Such development of the city continued up until the independence of Poland after the First World War. Early modernist styling in Kraków is represented by such masterpieces as the 'House under the Globe'. Secession style (Vienna Secession#Architecture) architecture, which had arrived in Kraków from Vienna, became popular towards the end of Austro-Hungarian rule.

hosting significant

to their extinctions. Boutique hotels are typically hotels with a unique environment or intimate setting. Some hotels have gained their renown through tradition, by hosting significant events or persons, such as Schloss Cecilienhof in Potsdam, Germany, which derives its fame from the Potsdam Conference of the World War II allies Winston Churchill, Harry Truman and Joseph Stalin in 1945. The Taj Mahal Palace & Tower in Mumbai is one of India's most famous and historic hotels because of its association with the Indian independence movement. Some establishments have given name to a particular meal or beverage, as is the case with the Waldorf Astoria (Waldorf-Astoria Hotel) in New York City, United States where the Waldorf Salad was first created or the Hotel Sacher in Vienna, Austria, home of the Sachertorte. Others have achieved fame by association with dishes or cocktails created on their premises, such as the Hotel de Paris where the crêpe Suzette was invented or the Raffles Hotel in Singapore, where the Singapore Sling cocktail was devised. Common methods of Internet access in homes include dial-up, landline broadband (Broadband Internet access) (over coaxial cable, fiber optic or copper wires), Wi-Fi, satellite (Satellite Internet) and 3G 4G technology cell phones (mobile phone). Public places to use the Internet include libraries and Internet cafes, where computers with Internet connections are available. There are also Internet access points (Internet kiosk) in many public places such as airport halls and coffee shops, in some cases just for brief use while standing. Various terms are used, such as "public Internet kiosk", "public access terminal", and "Web payphone". Many hotels now also have public terminals, though these are usually fee-based. These terminals are widely accessed for various usage like ticket booking, bank deposit, online payment etc. Wi-Fi provides wireless access to computer networks, and therefore can do so to the Internet itself. Hotspots (Hotspot (Wi-Fi)) providing such access include Wi-Fi cafes (Wi-Fi#Internet access), where would-be users need to bring their own wireless-enabled devices such as a laptop or PDA (Personal Digital Assistant). These services may be free to all, free to customers only, or fee-based. A hotspot need not be limited to a confined location. A whole campus or park, or even an entire city can be enabled. Grassroots efforts have led to wireless community networks. Commercial Wi-Fi services covering large city areas are in place in London, Vienna, Toronto, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Chicago and Pittsburgh. The Internet can then be accessed from such places as a park bench. Wikipedia:Vienna Commons:Category:Vienna

light music

of Light Music first H. E. last Jacob year 1940 publisher The Greystone Press page 341 and died in Vienna, at the age of 73. He was buried in the Zentralfriedhof. At the time of his death, he was still composing his ballet ''Aschenbrödel''.

The oldest

dominated the Viennese (Vienna) light music world for decades, creating many waltzes and polkas for many Austrian nobility as well as dance-music enthusiasts around Europe. He was affectionately known in his family as 'Edi'. Strauss' musical career was pervaded with rivalry not only from his brothers, but also from the military bandmaster and dance music composer Karl Michael Ziehrer, who even formed a rival orchestra called "Formerly Eduard Strauss Orchestra", and began giving concerts in Vienna under this new title. Eduard Strauss successfully filed a court action against Ziehrer for the improper and misleading use of his name, but Ziehrer would eventually surpass the Strauss family in popularity in Vienna, particularly after the deaths of his more talented brothers, Johann Strauss II and Josef Strauss. Their rivalry was to extend until the Strauss Orchestra was disbanded. However, personal setbacks in the 1890s, such as the death of brother Johann Strauss II in 1899, and his realization that his immediate family had squandered his personal fortune, led Eduard Strauss to decide on retirement. Eduard Strauss engaged in the final tour of his musical career to North America in 1899 and in 1901, disbanded the Strauss Orchestra, and returned to Vienna where he died in 1916.
